Im doing a school project were I need a song with Oxymorons in the lyrics.
Oh, they'll be along in due time.
One song that leaps to my mind is Simon & Garfunkel's 'Sound of Silence'
Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks, "How Can I Miss You When You Won't Go Away"
BaaaaaaaBy you've got to be "Cruel to be Kind" by Nick Lowe.
There was a song called Cruel To Be Kind...Nick Lowe I think
Then again - there's the 1973 Spooky Tooth album title, 'You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw'
What about that "cruel to be kind song"? I think that's an example.
Or the Groucho Marx song "I just came by to say I must be going" (or something like that
That's the most ridiculous thing I ever hoid.
You said that you'd be mine
Baby said that you'd be mine
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care, I don't care
I don't waaaaaaannnnnt you
But I waaaaaaaaannnnnt you
I want you I want you to stay
Ramones -- "I Don't Want You"
found it. Its called "Hello, I must be going"
I want you.
I need you.
But there ain't no way I'm ever gonna love you.
Meatloaf -- "Two Out of Three (Ain't Bad)"
I love him so much it just turns to hate
I fake it so real, I am beyond fake
Hole -- "Doll Parts"
If you live through this with me, I swear that I will die for you
Hole -- "Asking For It"
'Hurts So Good' - John Cougar Mellencamp
"It's a same difference, it makes no difference to me, she was pretty ugly, our love is bittersweet.
I first met Mary Joe on a rainy Sunday, I was a student teacher on a working vacation just hanging out in the industrial park. But that's old news.
She was eating fresh frozen jumbo shrimp off of paper china with plastic silverware, she offered me a bite but I said "No, thanks! It looks like it's been freezer burned."
Close by in the distance, I heard a dull roar of the elevated subway coming to a rolling stop.
Almost immediately, I turned back around and there was Mary Joe half naked. She took of her loose tights while I quicky shed my tight slacks before you know it we were both committing a cardinal sin, she was awful good.
It's a same difference, it makes no difference to me, she was pretty ugly, our love is bittersweet, good grief.
Well I can see my time is growing short, this song is an original copy of something that was recorded live, and as for me and Mary Joe well, we are happily married."
Then there's the famous folk song by Stephen Foster, "Oh! Susannah"...
"...It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
The sun so hot, I froze to death
Susannah, don't you cry..."
That country folk song, Oh, Suzanna. Full of them...
